need expert advise for new tub drain with oversized opening

Hi, my problem: my new custom marble tub has an opening of 3.25" (2" deep) and needs faceplate of 4". Made mistake when ordering. None of standard drains fit. Does anyone knows where I can find (or custom order) oversized (or conversion) parts? Or any suggestions how to silicon big opening with flat metal ring to make it standard...? Would appreciate ANY advise/suggestion! Please help!
Thank you.
